Now under development after a crowdfunding campaign, the futuristic RTS is expected to release next year.

The games listed below don’t have definite release dates.
Age of Empires IV (Relic Entertainment)
Details are somewhat scarce at the moment, but one thing that is known is the developer, Relic (of Homeworld, Company of Heroes fame), is helming the project.
Ancient Cities (Uncasual Games)
Relive the past… the very distant past, that is, in this strategy/city-building game set in the ancient era of mankind.
Atomic Heart (Mundfish)
An FPS set during an alternate timeline Soviet Union with all the steampunk and high-tech flavor it can muster.
Barkley 2 (Tale of Game’s Studios)
Beyond Good & Evil 2 (Ubisoft)
Michael Ansel spent much of 2017 teasing the next game in the series and this follow-up is a prequel to Jade and Pey’j’s story. Gamers have been waiting a long time for this one. It still remains in development with more news to come in 2019.
BioShock 4 (Cloud Chamber/2K)
No release date has been confirmed, but we do know that the next game in the BioShock franchise has been in development since 2015. Initial plans were scrapped until the project was passed onto one of 2K’s in-house studios, Cloud Chamber.
Blood (Nightdive Studios)
A classic FPS from the glorious 90s, Blood pits you against deranged supernatural horrors. No launch date for this re-release has been provided yet. For now, just enjoy the old game.
Dark Moon (Jujubee): TBA
Gather resources, upgrade your mobile base, and survive. Oh, and make sure to stay in the shade. The scorching hot sun will burn you to cinders.
Diablo IV (Blizzard)
The game was said to be in development years ago almost as a “Souls-like” type of offering. It’s since been rebooted to the Diablo IV that we’ll eventually see in the future. Lilith, the daughter of Mephisto, will be the arch-villain of the game. And yes, we’ll still have mobile phones by then.
Divinity: Fallen Heroes (Larian Studios/Logic Artists)
Continues the story of Divinity 2, and will be more tactics-oriented. Put on hold indefinitely.
Dragon Age IV: The Dread Wolf Rises (Bioware)
With only a teaser during the 2018 Game Awards, we’ve yet to find out more about the next Dragon Age game.
Eden Remains: Arrival (Revelation Games)
A sci-fi shooter from an indie, Christian-based studio.
Elden Ring (FromSoftware)
We’ve only seen bits and pieces here and there, but we do know two things:
- It’s made by the people behind Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro.
- It’s a collaboration with none other than Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin.
The newly announced game developed by Rare is shrouded in mystery. What can be gleaned from the X019 trailer is that it’s got a mix of fantasy and adventure given strange yet familiar creatures.
Genesis Noir (Feral Cat Den)
The game’s Steam description would do it justice:
A noir adventure set before, during and after the Big Bang. Explore black holes, primordial Earth, and jazz cafes. Witness the birth and history of mankind. Find comfort in a glass of gin. Search for a way to destroy creation.
IGI: Origins (Antimatter Games): TBA
Set in an alternate 1980s while the Cold War rages, you’ll control an MI6 agent as he attempts to unravel a global conspiracy.
In The Valley Of The Gods (Campo Santo)
A new first-person exploration game from the makers of Firewatch. Egypt is the setting. The game’s development has been put on hold.
Midnight Ghost Hunt (Vaulted Sky Games)
There’s a bit of spooky fun going on. Midnight Ghost Hunt will be a 4v4 prop-hunting game where spirits control said props, and ghost hunters try to find them. The roles are reversed once the clock strikes midnight.
Natural Instincts (DreamStorm Studios)
Marvel at the wonders of nature and help animals survive against disasters and the presence of humans.
Ode to a Moon (Colorfiction)
You’re a journalist covering a strange festival when a lunar eclipse sends the inhabitants in a flight of madness. A demo is already available on Steam, though an official release is expected in 2021.
Path of Exile 2 (Grinding Gear Games)
Recently announced during the first-ever ExileCon held in New Zealand, the sequel to the hit indie ARPG promises to deliver the goods. We’ll see improved character models, special effects, monsters, loot, and locations. But, because GGG did not want to split up the player base or let purchases go to waste, they’ve ensured that content from previous leagues and even your stash tabs and cosmetics will be made available for both games.
Path of Exile 2 will provide a seven-act campaign that’s different from the original game. Newly-created exiles will also be able to choose from 19 new ascendancy classes that are vastly different from those that currently exist.
Prologue (PlayerUnknown Productions)
Brendan Greene (also known as PlayerUnknown of PUBG fame) is looking to create “worlds at scale,” gigantic locales that thousands of players can explore online to find new experiences.
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story (Airship Syndicate/Riot)
A turn-based tactical RPG where you control League of Legends heroes to find out more about the titular “Ruined King.”
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II (Ninja Theory)
The sequel to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will release for the Xbox Series X. But, don’t fret, because it might eventually become available for Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers.
STALKER 2 (GSC Game World)
Get ready to survive the harsh, irradiated wastelands once more.
Bethesda’s first new IP in over 20 years. More details to come.
Tales of Arise (Bandai Namco)
The seventeenth (!) entry in the Tales franchise.
The Elder Scrolls VI : (Bethesda)
Highly anticipated and announced at E3 2018. More details to come.
The Wolf Among Us 2 (AdHoc Studio/Telltale Games)
This comes a surprise considering that Telltale had shut down in 2018. Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Games managed to salvage The Walking Dead: The Final Season‘s concluding episodes, and it looks like Telltale veterans will look to kickstart The Wolf Among Us 2 using the Unreal Engine.
Tunic (Andrew Shouldice): TBA
A cutesy adventure featuring a heroic fox.
Twelve Minutes (Luis Antonio/Annapurna Interactive)
A romantic evening with your wife turns into a disaster when police break into your home and beat you to death. And then, you wake up, twelve minutes before your impending doom. You relive the moment over and over, stuck in a time loop, unless you can figure out a way to solve the mystery.
Unto the End (2 Ton Studios)
A father must reunite with his family, but he’ll encounter dangerous creatures along the way.
Weird West (WolfEye Studios)
An RPG that is set in the wild west, except it’s overrun by monsters and other fantastical creatures.
